About Today Readings

Romans 5:12, 15, 17-21. Psalm 39(40):7-10, 17. Luke 12:35-38.

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will – Psalm 39(40):7-10, 17

‘Have your lamps lit and be ready to open the door’

Do I watch for you each day, my God, knowing not when I shall find you, but being ever ready to respond? You come in so many varied ways, always seeking me out. I need to prepare my heart to receive you. Let me find you in the patterns and interruptions of my life. Perhaps you will come as a neighbour who needs my help, a friend who needs a listening ear, a family member who needs comfort or cheering, or a colleague calling me to understand.

Part of watching for you is the time I spend in prayer. Be present with me then, helping me to discern when best to spend time alone with you. Give me strength for my challenges and light for my path. Call me to an experience of community where I can be known and loved. Go ahead of me in my days.
